Student practices with ASL tutor

The certificate in Deaf Studies is available to students already holding a baccalaureate degree or higher. The certificate is designed to provide students with a foundation in American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture and an opportunity to explore careers in the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community. Students wishing to pursue a career in ASL/English interpreting are exposed to the requirements of the profession as a precursor to transferring to a certificate or bachelor degree program in interpreting.

Students must earn a minimum grade of B in all ASL courses and a minimum grade of C in DST courses. A minimum of 41 credit hours are required for students intending to continue their studies in interpreting.
